I wrote this post a little over a month ago. When we found out that a house was available for us on the YWAM base. I never got around to finishing it and posting it. So here you go!
Some exciting news for us…
We are moving!
We have been living in a house in town for the last two years, but in the last few weeks an opportunity to move onto the YWAM base has come to light. After much prayer and consideration it seems like the best option for us right now.
The YWAM base is 20km outside of town, and it is a farm on a huge piece of land. Currently there are about 6 families living on the base and several singles. There are people from America, South Africa, Holland, Zambia, and Namibia.
The biggest reason we want to move out there is to be part of the community of people that we will be working with. David and I have always felt that we should be part of a team, and work in a team setting so this is a way for us to work more closely with the team of people who are already working in Katutura.
The house is a fixer upper, so we will spend a few weeks before moving on replacing ceilings and painting. It should be fun though.
The house has three bedrooms so it is bigger than any place we have stayed in.
These are some pictures I took while the people on the base were still getting some of their furniture out.
Keep your eyes on this space for updates on the home improvements.
